Summary

The best-selling guide to qualitative research, updated and expanded.

Qualitative Research is the essential guide to understanding, designing, conducting, and presenting a qualitative research study. This fourth edition features new material covering mixed methods, action research, arts-based research, online data sources, and the latest in data analysis, including data analysis software packages as well as narrative and poetic analysis strategies. A new section offers multiple ways of presenting qualitative research findings. The accessible, jargon-free style makes this audiobook ideal for both novice and experienced researchers, emphasizing the role of a theoretical framework in designing a study while providing practical guidance.

Qualitative research reaches beyond the what, where, and when of quantitative analysis to investigate the why and how behind human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior, but this presents a number of significant challenges. This guide is an invaluable reference for students and practitioners alike, providing the deep understanding that this sometimes difficult area of research requires to produce accurate results.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Generally a solid book

The pages of the attached pdf were rather unclear i.e. out of focus

Otherwise the narration of content was fine.

Disappointing

Reading was fine but the content was sometimes too elementary and other points not as well understood didn’t go into enough detail

Hard to understand

The narrator was perfect, the language was easy to understand, yet I had a hard time understanding all the terms. I think I will have to listen one more time with a translator in hand.

Research information is good however this is a bias book more focused on pushing an agenda not research methods

When discussing research methods this book is great. However, the authors spend too much time discussing critical and political research repeatedly pointing to victimhood related topics. If the authors had stuck to research methods rather than pushing political points I would be able to recommend to my students but I cannot in good conscience instruct my learners to read or listen to the non scientific topics within this book.

An excellent research textbook

I have begun my investigation in to research, and I found this book completely comprehensive and thoroughly appropriate. If you are looking for an introduction to researh, you might finding it more than you need, but it was exactly what I was looking for and I bought the physical copy because I found it so valuable.

Great Book, Read Well

I'm really impressed by the narrator's performance here. The book itself is well written, though certainly there are other great books on qualitative research. This, however, is one of the only qualitative research books I could find with an audio book AND it's SO WELL performed. Kudos to making this possible; it makes research that much more accessible.
